đŸ“™ Berkeley Problems in Mathematics by Paulo Ney de Souza, Jorge-Nuno Silva, Paulo Ney de Souza — free download


In 1977, the Mathematics Department at the University of California, Berkeley, instituted a written examination as one of the first major requirements toward the Ph.D. degree in Mathematics. Its purpose was to determine whether first-year students in the Ph.D. program had successfully mastered basic mathematics in order to continue in the program with the likelihood of success. Since its inception, the exam has become a major hurdle to overcome in the pursuit of the degree.The purpose of this book is to publicize the material and aid in the preparation for the examination during the undergraduate years since a) students are already deeply involved with the material and b) they will be prepared to take the exam within the first month of the graduate program rather than in the middle or end of the first year. The book is a compilation of approximately nine hundred problems which have appeared on the preliminary exams in Berkeley over the last twenty years. It is an invaluable source of problems and solutions for every mathematics student who plans to enter a Ph.D. program. Students who work through this book will develop problem solving skills in areas such as real analysis, multivariable calculus, differential equations, metric spaces, complex analysis, algebra, and linear algebra. The problems are organized by subject and ordered in an increasing level of difficulty. Tags with the exact exam year provide the opportunity to rehearse complete examinations. The appendix includes instructions on accessing electronic versions of the exams as well as a syllabus, statistics of passing scores, and a Bibliography used throughout the solutions. This new edition contains approximately 120 new problems and 200 new solutions. It is an ideal means for students to strengthen their foundation in basic mathematics and to prepare for graduate studies.
